I have a few cases in the app I’m working on where it would make my life considerably easier to be able to obtain an element’s dimensions (width and/or height) and use them as variables to set spacings/dimensions of other elements accordingly.
Is there any way to do this in WeWeb? I found this old thread that is ostensibly about the same question but unfortunately doesn’t provide a clear answer: Access Dimensions of Element set to Auto Height/Width
Here’s a concrete example to illustrate what I mean:
- I have a top navbar that has a variable height (set to auto, dependent on the dimensions of child elements + padding). I don’t have a way to manually calculate that height.
- I have a sidebar, the height of which should be equal to the height of the viewport minus the height of that top navbar, minus some (fixed) spacings.
How do I achieve that? I’m okay with a solution that uses JS, just not sure what that would be. Thanks!
